Waste Not!

Presented by Nikki Pfarr, Design Researcher & Strategist at Artefact

Why do people throw out things they know are recyclable? Why does a smiley face on an energy bill change usage habits? In this workshop, learn how insights from behavioral economics and cognitive psychology can help us nudge people toward more sustainable and environmentally friendly habits.

Designing For the Future

Presented by Ming-Li Chai, Strategic Design Researcher at Microsoft

As leaders, practitioners and designers who operate in rapidly changing environments, how do we make sense of trends, stay ahead of the curve, recognize an opportunity when it happens, and take advantage of it in our pursuit of future solutions? In this workshop, we will share a mindset and a toolset to help you factor in the future when you create design strategies today.

Sensory Deprivation for Breakthrough Innovation

Presented by Joyce Chou, Design Program Manager at Microsoft

The way we interact with technology is rapidly evolving beyond the touch of a screen or button. Mobile phones enable a whole new world of interaction behavior that leverage gestures and movements, where people can use the motion of either bodies or objects. This workshop looks at ways to design new mobile features and products that use more than just touch, sight, and sound.
